I got this message from singer/songwriter Monty Harper.Â Sounds like a project worthy of our support!
“Songs From the Science Frontier” will be a CD of unique science songs for kids ages 8-12, and I’m using Kickstarter.com to try and raise the money to make a really top-flight recording.
The songs are unique because they focus on every-day scientists and current scientific research.
Specific topics include phototaxic bacteria, stress hormones, wheat genomics, bacterial biofilms, bat taxonomy, x-ray crystallography, and luminescence dating! The deeper messages are that science is a process done by real people; science is important, cool, fun, and relevant; and science belongs to everyone!
Would you check out my three-minute pitch video on kickstarter.com?
Here’s the link:
I need an insane number of people to see the website and make pledges in order to reach my funding goal.
My deadline is August 21. If I don’t reach the goal by then, I won’t get any money at all and I’ll have to put the project on hold.
I’m hoping you’ll find this to be worthy of your support, and worth a mention on American Freethought.
Please help make “Songs From the Science Frontier” a reality!
Award-Winning Children’s Songwriter
